NASFiC Site Selection

The North American Science Fiction Convention (NASFiC) is held in years when the World Science Fiction Convention is held outside of North America. Because the 2024 Worldcon will be in Glasgow, Scotland, we need to hold an election to select the site of the 2024 NASFiC. Under the provisions of the World Science Fiction Society constitution, section 4.8.1, Pemmi-Con will hold this election. Only members of Pemmi-Con can vote. In order to vote, you will need to pay an Advance Supporting Membership (Voting) Fee that makes you a supporting member of the winning bid.

One group, bidding for Buffalo, New York, USA, has filed a bid to host the 2024 NASFiC. Their proposed dates are July 18-21, 2024. Details of their bid, including their organizing document and their facilities agreement with the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center and the Hyatt Regency Buffalo, can be found on the NASFiC Bids website or their bid webpage.

Other groups may file as write-in bids up until the close of at-convention voting, currently scheduled for Friday, July 21, 2023, 6 PM Central Daylight Time. To file a bid in advance of the convention, send it by email to To file a bid at the convention, bring it to the Site Selection desk and give it to the Site Selection administrator. Only write-in bids that file with the administrator can actually win the election.

“None of the Above” is always listed on the ballot. Should it win, no NASFiC will be held, and Pemmi-Con will return all fees to the voters.


You can vote online, or mail in your ballot, or have someone deliver your ballot to the convention, or vote in person at the convention.
